Oregon, Going On

I just got back from Oregon. I am pretty sad about it.

Thursday morning we (my mom, my grandmother, and me) left on the twelve hour drive to Redmond. It went by so fast! Probably because I was eating and sleeping most of the time. You know how I do. Thursday night was Charly's bachelorette party, but I could go because it was at a bar. Ugh. Stupid drinking age. Anyway...

Friday I spent most of the day with Charly, my aunt, getting ready for her wedding. Oh, did I mention that that is why we went to Oregon? She got married. So awesome. Her new husband is a stud. Getting ready for it was crazy, and kind of made me nervous to get married. But hey, maybe I'll be like Liz Lemon and just never do it! Hahahaha. Ha. Ha. Oh.

Saturday was the wedding, it was great. I got to see a ton of family I haven't seen in years and some that I'd never even met! Plus just spending time with my aunt and her new husband and step-kids was really cool.

I took over 1500 pictures, and I'll post some of them eventually, I just hate dealing with pictures on Blogspot. It's so hard! (That's what she said.)

Now that I'm home I have a million things to catch up on, and I am slowly losing steam, so I leave you here!

Numbered list. Here we go!

Oh. My. Gosh. So much exciting stuff happening this week!

  1. Arcade Fire concert. Incredible. Those seven people are so amazing. It was so humbling/refreshing/revitalizing to watch them do their thing. But I did get a sunburn, and I did get bummed out because I realized that concerts are no longer social events, and so many people go to them and are douchebags to everyone else. But none of that mattered while they were playing. Also, I got a very painful sunburn.
  2. I am planning a trip to Colorado! Next month I'm going to go to Colorado to stay with Hutch and Shelley, and I am so excited! Normally, I don't like to talk so much about such tentative plans, but I am GOING to make this happen. I am so excited! Hutch has come out here twice since he moved to Colorado, but I haven't been out there. I am sooo excited!
  3. I am going to Oregon tomorrow, and I can't wait. My aunt Charly is getting married on Saturday and I am her Maid of Whatever. I am so excited! After the wedding we are going out to the coast for a couple of days and to see some other family.
  4. Also, I have started hating John Dorian. Yep. I am currently working my way through Scrubs, and John Dorian is a pansy of a man. How anyone could be so in love with him they would leave this guy for him is totally beyond me. First of all, every time a woman really needs him, he chickens out. Oh, JD, I'm pregnant with your baby. Oh, I don't think I can handle that. Really, JD? Maybe you shouldn't have GOTTEN HER PREGNANT BEFORE YOU DECIDED YOU COULDN'T HANDLE A BABY. He is awful.

Thanks Hutch!

Hutch so kindly reminded me that I need to write on this bad boy! Okay, he's not so bad. He's actually kind of cool. Beside the point.

It's Wednesday, and I feel like I am still recovering from last week. I was in this insane funk, and didn't go to a bunch of classes and took like, a hundred naps and just felt really down. But a few things happened to make that end. Number one, MY TRIP TO OREGON FOR CHARLY'S WEDDING IS IN ONE WEEK AND I CAN'T WAIT. Number two, Death Cab For Cutie did a live, one-take music video broadcast last night, and it was awesome. Their new single, You Are A Tourist is pretty incredible. Death Cab has been my favorite band for a long time, and I am SO excited to get their new album. But it doesn't come out for two months. Booooo.

Okay, also, The Arcade Fire concert in on Monday, and it is going to be so great. This will be the second time I am seeing them live, and I am so beyond stoked. The first time I saw them I mostly went to see LCD Soundsystem, but this time it is all them, baby.

Work has been going really well. My boss is looking to open up new kiosks, I'll be working tons and saving up money for school for the summer, and I am really excited.

For those of you that don't know, I work in the mall at a Pillow Pets kiosk. I love it! I don't necessarily love the product (unless you want to buy some, then it is the greatest thing since sliced bread!) but it's more the atmosphere I love. I work right next to a greenteaDAILY kiosk and an HCG kiosk, and all of the people are so cool! Plus, I'm just a stone's throw (who coined THAT phrase?) from a PretzelMaker, and I honestly don't think I've ever met such a rad group of people. They're all so cool, and maybe some of them are kind of dreamy and have nice smiles. I don't know, I couldn't say. Or could I?! I could. But I won't.

Sorry there aren't lots of pictures or anything, but I'm mostly just looking to write on here. I have a Tumblr where I post a lot of pictures, but I also do a lot of swearing and possibly-offensive-opinion expressing (Ha. Haha.), so you can just read this one!
